Our Work Environment

The pace of change happening in health care means every day at UnitedHealth Group is different. Here, we work to solve some of the most complex and diverse challenges you can imagine. Our work environments, whether physical or virtual, are shaped by the compassionate, driven and innovative people who are inspired by our mission to help people live healthier lives and make the health care system work better for everyone.

Our approach to community involvement and social responsibility is on display in each city where our employees are – whether that’s in the office or telecommuting from home. Our impact is recognized in a variety of ways including quality and access to health care, optimizing effectiveness of the health system, and  reducing our carbon footprint. If you thrive in a high performance, high accountability environment, this is truly a place where you can do your life's best work.SM
